My Favorite Potato Salad
I am very particular about my potato salad and I found this recipe about 7 years ago and it's the only one I ever make! Basic and to the point, it is absolutely delicious!
Yield: Makes 8 to 10 servings
4 pounds baking potatoes (8 large)
3 hard-cooked eggs, grated
1 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoon pepper
Cook potatoes in boiling water to cover 40 minutes or until tender; drain and cool. Peel potatoes, and cut into 1-inch cubes.
Stir together potato and egg.
Stir together mayonnaise and next 3 ingredients; gently stir into potato mixture. Serve immediately, or cover and chill, if desired.
Red Potato Salad: Substitute 4 pounds red potatoes (8 large red potatoes) for baking potatoes.
Potato Salad with Sweet Pickle: Add 1/3 cup sweet salad cube pickles to potato mixture.
Potato Salad with Onion and Celery: Add 2 celery ribs, diced, and 1/2 small sweet onion, diced, to potato mixture.
Light Potato Salad: Substitute 1 cup low-fat mayonnaise.
